Ole Henriksen's Truth Serum


So this weekend I just finished up a bottle of what seems to be everybody's new favorite serum, Ole Henriksen's Truth Serum Collagen Booster.  Now, I'll be blunt with this...I didn't like it.  I didn't like the price, I didn't like the texture, and I didn't like that I didn't see WOW and instant results everyone else who uses it seems to be experiencing.

First, this serum is considered an anti-aging product, but it also claims to promote brightness and has a TON of vitamin C, which I obvz think is great.  The brightness was what I was looking for, and didn't really see.  I was really looking forward to this product because I know how incredibly popular it is, but it really just didn't work for me.

The Sephora website describes Truth Serum as accomplishing... 
"weightless, fast-absorbing, oil-free 
formula penetrates to deep layers of the skin, offering instant and long-term hydration, nourishment, and antioxidant protection against environmental aggressors."  

I agree it was weightless, but I just found it too sticky (as most serums are), I thought since it's so great it wouldn't be as sticky as I found it to be.  Hopefully the part about protection against environmental aggressors is true, that's always a plus.  And, it smells amazing...super citrusy (duh, vitamin C) and the scent def woke me up in the morning! 

Anyway, I got the Ole Henriksen Truth To Go facial wipes in a promotional box, so I'll have to try those out and see how I like them!  

Has anybody reading used this product yet, or heard other reviews about it?  Let me know! xo

  1. Thats too bad that you didn't like it, its my absolute favorite face product! I totally saw a difference in my skin after about 10 days of using and I've repurchased it twice since then. Maybe you should try the Body Shop's Vitamin C products? I've heard good things about those as well.

  2. Hi! I found your blog through the Walkabout Wednesday Blog Hop! So glad to have found you! I just got a half sized sample bottle of this and I've been loving it for the past couple days that I've used it. It doesn't seem as potent as my other C serum which you might like better - it's the CSI Youth Serum, I got it through Vitacost.com and it was way cheaper than Truth Serum! The only thing I didn't like about the Youth Serum was it had a dropper to dispense the product, but I saw brightening results very quickly! Ok, this is a novel. Lol I'll stop now but it's worth a try if you're interested in still using Vit C :)
